*I received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Jelly Bean Blessings is seasonal board book illustrated by Maddie Frost. This book was published by Tommy Nelson (Thomas Nelson’s children division, a registered trademark of Harper Collins Christian Publishing, Inc.). The target audience is toddlers and pre-schoolers.
Last year, I got Candy Apple Blessings and it was a hit with my nephews, so I was really pleased to see Maddie Frost illustrated this book, and another one coming out this summer called Ice Cream Blessings.
This book features a pig, a fox, and an alligator (or is it a crocodile?) doing spring activities like picking flowers, jumping in puddles, planting a garden, flying kites, riding bikes, going on hikes, spring cleaning, and of course eating jelly beans (because Easter?).
I love how colorful this book is compared to the previous one! The little fox looks so cute when she is wearing sunglasses. The rhymes are a little odd to me, but there are repetitive words children will enjoy.
While this is sold as a Christian book, God isn’t mentioned until the very last page.
